Original Spanish Viola Repertoire from 17th to 19th centuries. Practical Use in Viola Teaching.

Since the appearance of the modern viola, it has been repeated that “there is little repertoire” and only a small part has been used in pedagogy, since the first chair in Paris (1894, T. E. Laforge) and Spain (1948, P. Meroño).
There are previous historical investigations (Barrett, 1996; Riley, 1993), general lists (Williams, 1979; Zeyringer, 1985) and pedagogical investigations in Spain (García Torrelles, 2005; Kovacs, 2013; Magín, 2012) and outside Spain (Mijailovna, 2006; Palumbo, 1981; Sawodny, 1976). Among the 800 original works, we will focus on the Spanish repertoire and its use in viola teaching. Within this we will talk about the Sonatas of the Royal Chapel, an institution of great importance in Spain and also some works of late romanticism. This exhibition is directly related to the Conference topic since it is a new way of programming important and currently forgotten viola works in the Conservatories.
